Journey Montana Interview
What was the inspiration behind your new “Case of the Ex” video?
Journey Montana: I pulled inspiration from music videos like Cassie’s “Long Way To Go” girl time feel with a mixture of Ariana Grande’s “7 rings” and added the all pink background for aesthetics. I wanted to highlight black girl magic with all different shades of girls being shown in a beautiful positive mundane light, especially with all that is going on in the world. I think that is an image that needs to be showcased.
How has it been being 17 years old in the music industry?
Journey Montana: It definitely has been a unique experience so far, especially because most people I work with start off, think I am either much younger or older than my actual age. Sometimes people will feel like it may be easier to take charge of or intimidate me in the workspace because of my age, but when they see that is not the case things are usually pretty smooth.
What makes you unique as an r&b singer?
Journey Montana: What makes me unique as an r&b artist is my relatability, my songwriting style and my versatility, which will be showcased in my forthcoming EP.
How were you able to make the transition from being a popular YouTuber turned rising r&b sensation?
Journey Montana: Honestly it took some adjusting, in the beginning recording in a real recording studio was definitely something i had to take time to genuinely master, because it’s nothing like singing in my bathroom. and also my subscribers probably had to adjust to to change from covers to official music videos.
What does black beauty look like to you?
Journey Montana: Black beauty looks like embracing who you are and where you come from in every way and aspect. When you elude self love despite all else.
What are some ways you hope to inspire other young ladies like yourself?
Journey Montana: I hope to inspire young women to follow your dreams, you can do whatever it is you set your mind to just stay focused on your goals and keep God close.
What is one things most people don’t know about you?
Journey Montana: I’m a cat mom, her name is Baby and she never leaves my side.
